Districts of Panem Tag

I saw this tag over on YA Bookaholic's blog, I have no idea who created this tag. But, I love me some tags. And with the final Hunger Games movie just being out, I thought this was the perfect tag to do.... even though I haven't seen the final movie yet, I have read the books so that counts. Anyways! Here we go.

Districts of Panem Tag:

District 1 - Luxury: Pick a book with lots of opulence.
   This is kind of tough, a lot of books I read have a fair amount of luxury in them. I'm gonna go with Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. The main character loves expensive things. Be it pretty dresses or sharp knives.

District 2 - Masonry / Weaponry: Pick a book with a great war or conflict.
   Oh, so many. I'm gonna go with; An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir
That book is pretty much completely war biased.

District 3 - Technology: Pick a book with a technological twist.
   Not really a "twist", well it kind of is, but kind of not a twist.
Cipher by Aileen Erin

District 4 - Fishing: Pick a water-based book.
   Water So Deep by Nichole Giles
Mer-folk book. Can't get much more water-based than that.

District 5 - Electricity: Pick a powerful book.
   Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
This book/series has some really great quotes that are pretty thought provoking.

District 6 - Transportation: Pick a book that takes place in many locations.
   Rex Rising (Elei's Chronicles #1) by Chrystalla Thoma
This book/series takes place all over the map. (And it's a hidden gem of a book)

District 7 - Lumber: Pick a book that involves manual labour.
   Hmm.... Steelheart by Brandon Sanderson.
There are characters that who have tunneled through the ground that used to be soil but, because of a powerful Epic, is now made of metal. And that takes a lot of work, even with their gadgets.

District 8 - Textiles: Pick a book with amazing clothes.
     Pretty much any book could go here. But, the book I am going to chose is;
The Shadow Revolution by Clay and Susan Griffith
Set in a Victorian era, and slightly steampunk.

District 9 - Grain: Pick a book where food is hard to come by.
   Purenet by H.J. Lawson
Only certain people can get food on the regular. But really any distopian book can go here.

District 10 - Livestock: Pick a book with an animal in it.
   The Raven Boys  by Maggie Stiefvater
Chainsaw the raven

District 11 - Agriculture: Pick a book where a character comes to a gritty, harsh reality.
    The Winner's Crime by Marie Rutkoski
In this sequel one of the main characters makes a decision and changes her mind about how the world should work and it steams from one of my favorite quotes from a book
“There was dishonor, she decided, in accepting someone else’s idea of honor without question.”

District 12 - Mining: Pick a dark and sinister book.
There is just something really unsettling about this book. 

Well there it is. Another tag, that I wasn't tagged to do. But just try and stop me! :p
